resurgence of malaria
cases, with a significant
increase in patients both
in the city and surround-
ing villages. As the mon-
soon season approaches,
the number of malaria
patients has surged, rais-
ing alarm among health
officials and residents.
Jaisalmer has reported
the highest number of ma-
laria cases in the state,
with 53 patients identified
so far. In May alone, 24
positive cases were con-
firmed. Although govt
data indicates no new cas-
es in June, pvt hosps are
diagnosing about 10 out of
every 100 patients with
malaria daily. The rise in
malaria cases is being at-
tributed to the negligence
of two key departments:
the Medical Department
and the Municipal Coun-
cil. Both have been criti-
cized for their lack of pre-
ventive measures and re-
sponse to the outbreak.
The need for preventive
measures and increased
vigilance is emphasized to
avert a larger health crisis
during the rainy season.

l i c e m a n
write out a
‘fineamount’
foracardriverwhohasvio-
lated some traffic regula-
tion, such as exceeding the
speedlimitorcrossingared
light? That must be an in-
stance of a driver’s failing
to discipline himself. He
may have yielded to the
temptationortheimpulseto
ignore traffic rules, and so
had to be disciplined.
The very laws of cause
and effect within our bod-
ies discipline us, if we do
not discipline ourselves.
What is true of individuals
can be applied to a large
team in an organisation.
The less one disciplines
oneself, the more such
ones need to be disciplined
by their seniors in the in-
terest of peace and unity.
Discipline is training,
especially of the mind or
character. Discipline
comes from many sources,
because of one’s lack of
knowledge and experi-
ence. One who disciplines
oneself by being conscien-
tious and thorough in work
habits, whether someone is
observing or not, will have
an inner satisfaction and
good reputation.
Sometimes, others may
not appreciate our firm-
ness in a certain matter, but
we personally know where
we must exercise self-dis-
cipline in different aspects
of our life. Our natural in-
clination often is to follow
the course of least resist-
ance. It takes self-control
to be self-disciplined. So,
we need help to do the
things that may be difficult
to do on our own.
Discipline is also seen as
training or experience that
corrects, strengthens or
perfects the mental facul-
ties. One may feel the need
to discipline oneself to
wake up early, or one may
need it to acquire knowl-
edge or skill.
If one disciplines one-
self in little things, it will
be easy to do so in big
things. There is a sense of
achievement in the realiza-
tion that we did something
on time instead of putting
it off. Even a small thing
such as getting up when
the alarm clock rings rath-
er than lazily lying in bed,
shows discipline. There is
a sense of well-being or
strength that comes with
each act of self-discipline
rather than yielding to
one’s inclinations and in-
dulging oneself.
Self-discipline also
helps in building good re-
lations with others. For
example, speaking either
too loudly or too softly,
can create a poor impres-
sion on others. One can
even offend others by the
way one listens, or fails to
listen when others speak.
The same can be said about
disciplining oneself at the
table, not taking too much
food at one go, not eating
too rapidly or too noisily,
all require self-discipline.
Good health demands
self-discipline, to be con-
sistent with one’s exercise
routine. What about pos-
ture? Good posture cer-
tainly pays off in improved
health, along with progres-
sively improving confi-
dence and poise. Not to be
overlooked is the value of
self-discipline in the matter
of recreation. Pursuing
them in moderation saves a
lot of time and energy.
Likewise, leaving a social
gathering at a reasonable
hour to get a good night’s
sleep is necessary to do jus-
tice to the next day’s duties.
Doing what is right is
not simply doing, ‘what
comes naturally.’ It re-
quires conscious effort,
alertness, determination or
firmness of purpose and
persistence. It means
showing will power and
restraint. Discipline can
also come from others in
the form of correction. For
it to be effective, it can be
given gently and not in a
burst of anger. In most
cases, merely a few words
are sufficient. Discipline is
not liked by many. Often,
one fails to appreciate its
necessity and benefits.
At times, one can go to
extremes, either becoming
obsessive or becoming
slack.Atree that is allowed
to get out of hand and not
trimmed, fails to bear fruit
or flourish. Rather, it de-
generates or gets diseased.
Therefore, one needs to be
alert at all times, not only to
the position and authority
one has, but also to the dan-
gers both from within and
from those around us. Plan-
ning a routine, creating a
schedule and then sticking
to it, helps. Tackling the
work on hand, even when
one doesn’t feel motivated
to do it, requires self-disci-
pline. Taking breaks and
doing some physical activ-
ity refreshes one to concen-
trate and focus on the task.
Any helpful advice that
moulds our thinking, im-
proves our understanding
and motivates us to correct
our ways is a kind of disci-
pline. Responsiveness to
what we learn through writ-
ten or spoken words is a
splendid form of self-disci-
pline. Being contrary to
self-indulgence, it inspires
one to pursue one’s goals
and move towards maturity
for higher achievements.

LONG ROAD AHEAD
FOR RUPEE TRADE
INTERNATIONALLY
TECH ACCESSIBILITY
BRIDGES DIVIDE
audi Arabia has ended its petrodollar agree-
ment with the US recently made headlines
as reports spoke of global economies moving
away from dollar trade. A report has now surfaced
claiming that the agreement being referred to in me-
dia and on social media, in fact, never existed.
The story has been dismissed as fake. But it has
ignited hope for the internationalization of the Indian
rupee. Acceptance of rupee payment by trading part-
ners, as was done by Russia for its oil supplies to India,
reduces the outgo of valuable foreign currency. India
has negotiated a Russia-like deal with the UAE and
Singapore for trade in respective national currencies.
Despite the Indian economy making strides, for
the rupee to be globally acceptable is not going to be
easy. Dollar continues to be strong and stable, though
China and South Africa, both members of BRICS,
are trying to curtail dependence on dollars. China,
especially, wants to see an end to America’s global
economic dominance.
S
n the contemporary global scenario, technol-
ogy’s transformative power is undeniable.
Yet, its benefits are often monopolized by a
few countries, exacerbating social inequalities.To fos-
ter a more equitable world, technology must be uni-
versally accessible.This approach not only bridges the
digital divide but also uplifts marginalized communi-
ties, fostering social inclusion and economic growth.
A human-centric approach towards technology, as
advocated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the
G7 meet, ensures that advancements serve the broad-
er population, not just the elite. By prioritizing acces-
sibility, nations can address fundamental societal is-
sues such as education, healthcare, and economic
disparity. For instance, digital platforms can revolu-
tionize education by
providing quality
learning resources to
remote and under-
served areas. Simi-
larly, telemedicine
can bring healthcare
services to the door-
steps of those living
in rural regions, miti-
gating geographical
barriers.
India’s success in
leveraging digital
technology for public
service delivery
serves as a beacon of
this inclusive ap-
proach. The Aadhaar
system, a biometric
identification program, has facilitated direct benefit
transfers to millions, reducing corruption and ensur-
ing that subsidies and welfare benefits reach the in-
tended recipients. The Unified Payments Interface
(UPI) has democratized financial services, enabling
seamless digital transactions across the socioeco-
nomic spectrum. By promoting the global dissemina-
tion of technology, countries can share innovations
and best practices, fostering a collaborative effort to
tackle global challenges. Technology should not be
a privilege of the few but a fundamental right for all.
A concerted effort to democratize technology can
pave the way for a more just and prosperous world,
where social inequalities are mitigated through
shared progress and human-centric development.

SINGLE-RUN VICTORY OVER NEPAL
Kingstown: In a heart-stopping finish, Nepal
came agonisingly close to a historic victory,
falling just one run short as South Africa edged
them out in a thrilling T20 World Cup encounter. South
Africa's triumph was orchestrated by Tabraiz Shamsi's
crucial double-wicket over and Ottneil Baartman's com-
posed final deliveries, complemented by a stroke of luck
on the very last ball. Chasing a modest target of 115 set
by South Africa, Nepal seemed poised for a win with 18
runs needed from the last 18 balls, thanks to the steady
batting of 23-year-old Aasif Sheikh.

NITISH KUMAR, THE MASTER OF POLITICS!
DU supremo Nitish Kumar has
been among the master players
of political checkmate. Recently,
when he was coming from Patna to Delhi
to attend the NDA meeting, he was seen
chatting with RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav
in same flight. It is said that this video was
leaked on social media courtesy of Nit-
ish himself so that pressure could
be maintained on the BJP. As
for JDU getting a weak ministry
like ‘fisheries’, all this happened
with the consent of Nitish. He did
not want to create another RCP
Singh for himself by giving any
heavy ministry to Lallan Singh. It
is said that after coming to Delhi,
Nitish also reminded
BJP top leader-
ship that he was
promised that Bihar assembly polls would
also be held along with the Maharashtra
assembly elections. But the way Election
Commission has hastily announced by-
polls, at least it does not seem so. It seems
that Bihar assembly elections will be held on
the scheduled time i.e. in 2025. When Nitish
Kumar was being shown as a ‘kingmaker’
in entire media, a statement of
Bihar’s Dy CM Vijay Sinha comes
to fore in which he is seen
saying frankly that ‘there is no
‘kingmaker’ in the country’, that
is, in a way, this hint was given
to Nitish. Is it a coincidence that
soon after this, on Thursday
morning, Tejashwi Yadav, while
‘jogging’ in half pants,
reaches his uncle
Nitish’s house.
J
hen Devendra Fadnavis hurriedly submit-
ted his resignation from the post of Deputy
CM to the central leadership over the poor
performance of BJP in Maharashtra, for the time
being, his resignation was not accepted and he
was asked to continue in his post. Soon after this,
a mountain of troubles fell on Fadnavis, when one
of his best friends and Mumbai Cricket Association
President 47-year-old Amol Kale suddenly passed
away. After watching the India-Pakistan match in
the T20 World Cup, Kale was staying in a hotel in
New York where he suffered a heart attack and the
doctors could not save him. Amol Kale, a resident
of Nagpur, was counted among the big business-
men. He was very close to Devendra Fadnavis.
Kale’s sudden demise is being considered a per-
sonal loss for Fadnavis.
SP leader Mayawati’s politics is now on the
decline. In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections,
the vote of her party BSP in UP has come
down to just 9.39 percent. In the last 10 years, the
vote of BSP has fallen by more than 10 percent. Now
Mayawati’s own leaders have started threatening
Mayawati. Mayawati had fielded an old leader of the
state BSP from a Dalit dominated seat in UP. When
Mayawati’s nephew Akash Anand reached there to
campaign for her, he spewed a lot of fire against the
BJP, which angered Mayawati and she removed her
nephew from the post of ‘National Coordinator’ of
party overnight. When the election results came, this
leader’s deposit was forfeited. ‘Behen ji’ was very
angry with this and after this, this leader got a call
from the Lucknow coordinator of BSP that the money
given to him by the party for his election should be
returned immediately. This leader asked coordinator
to let him talk to Behen ji as he is ready to return the
money. After this, Behen ji called this leader and she
scolded him a lot. Infuriated with anger, Behen ji said
something to that leader which she should not have
said. Netaji was no less and he also scolded Behan
ji and said, ‘It is because of her greed for money that
the party has reached this low today.’ It is said that
Netaji recorded the entire conversation with Behan
ji on his phone and threatened to leak it on social
media. This threat had an immediate effect and the
Lucknow coordinator immediately approached the
leader and he was offered compensation and the
entire conversation was deleted from his phone.

Nadu IAS officer
VK Pandian,
who was once Naveen
Patnaik’s ‘blue-eyed
boy’, has said goodbye
to active politics after
BJD’s crushing defeat in
the elections. If sources
are to be believed, as
soon as the election re-
sults of Odisha Assembly
and Lok Sabha started
coming, a large crowd of
BJD workers and leaders
surrounded Pandian’s
house from all sides and
started pelting stones at
his house. Pandian was
already apprehensive
about this, so as a pre-
caution, he had already
sent his wife and children
to Dubai. Sources say
that after this Pan-
dian also secretly left for
Dubai. After reaching
Dubai, he kept his phone
off for 4 days. On the
fifth day, as soon as he
turned on his phone, a
shocked Naveen Patnaik
called him. It is said that
Naveen only told him
that ‘You ran away to
Dubai with all the party’s
money.’ Pandian then
wanted to explain. He
also returned from Dubai
but landed in Chennai
instead of Bhubane-
swar. Sources say that
Pandian has bought a
luxurious bungalow for
himself in Chennai. This
is the same bungalow on
which CM Stalin also had
his eyes, but Pandian
bought it by paying a
higher price.

SALUTING RAJASTHAN POLICE ON 75TH FOUNDATION DAY
First India News presents wall clocks, honours police efficiency
Satyanarayan Sharma
Jaipur
n the momen-
tous occasion
of the 75th
Foundation Day of the
Rajasthan Police, First
India News has em-
barked on a thoughtful
initiative to honour their
dedication and service.
As a gesture of apprecia-
tion, First India News
pledged to donate wall
clocks to all police sta-
tions and offices across
Rajasthan, beginning
with the inaugural phase
of distribution to the po-
lice stations in Jaipur.
The symbolic presenta-
tion took place with First
India News CEO and
Managing Editor, Pawan
Arora, personally hand-
ing over 101 wall clocks
to Jaipur Police Com-
missioner Biju George
Joseph.
During the ceremony,
Pawan Arora commend-
ed the proactive efforts
of the Jaipur Police un-
der the leadership of
Commissioner Biju
George Joseph in swiftly
addressing criminal ac-
tivities. In response,
Commissioner Biju
George Joseph warmly
welcomed Pawan Arora
to the Commissionerate
and expressed gratitude
to First India News for
their community-mind-
ed initiative. He lauded
the channel not only for
its prominence in the
realm of news but also
for its commitment to
social causes.
The event was marked
by discussions on vari-
ous pertinent issues be-
tween Commissioner
Biju George Joseph and
Pawan Arora, including
the operational hours of
clubs, pubs, and bars.
Commissioner Biju
George Joseph outlined
the regulatory measures
adopted by the Jaipur
Police, stipulating that
clubs and pubs must
close by midnight,
whereas restaurants not
serving alcohol are per-
mitted to operate until 1
am. This measure aims
to safeguard the youth
from distractions like
drugs, ensuring their fo-
cus remains on educa-
tion rather than nightlife.
Addressing concerns
from residents about
noise pollution caused
by clubs in residential
areas, Commissioner
Biju George Joseph clar-
ified that there is no
blanket ban on bars,
pubs, and clubs operat-
ing within hotels or des-
ignated areas. Pawan
Arora, in turn, suggested
broader municipal and
city planning actions to
regulate clubs operating
in residential areas which
is a nuisance to the local
residents , proposing col-
laboration with the JDA
and JMC for enhanced
enforcement.
Meanwhile, Biju also
briefed Arora on recent
launch of the NazarApp,
aimed at enhancing pub-
lic safety by providing
real-time information on
crime prevention, law
enforcement updates,
and road accident pre-
vention within the city.

 First India News is not only prominent in
world of news but also social concerns: Biju
 Jaipur Police has taken swift action against
criminals under leadership of Biju, says Arora
 Low voter turnout also had an impact  Lost due to sabotage
in Barmer, Nagaur, Churu, Jhunjhunu  Questions raised on
candidate selection in Tonk-Sawai Madhopur, Sikar, and Dausa
BJP leaders said that caste based factionalism
was the main reason for the defeat on these seven
seats. Many leaders clearly said that in these elec-
tions, the party’s core voter also seemed to be away from
the BJP. During the review meeting, the impact of the
farmers’ movement in Sikar was also cited as one of the
major reasons for the election defeat. At the same time,
the distance of BJP’s core voter on Jhunjhunu seat and
the selection of candidate in Churu were counted among
the reasons for the defeat. The reason for the defeat was
said to be the loss to the party due to the worsening of
caste equations in Barmer and Dausa. During the review
discussion, the distance of Gurjar and Meena voters from
BJP in Dausa and Tonk-Sawai Madhopur seats was also
counted as a major reason for the defeat.

tep into a world
where fatherhood
transcends stereo-
types and becomes
a tapestry of resil-
ience, sacrifice and uncondition-
al love. The Pursuit of Happy-
ness (2006) stars Will Smith in
a poignant portrayal of Chris
Gardner, a struggling father who
navigates homelessness while
striving to build a better life for
his son. Their unwavering bond
amidst adversity showcases the
resilience and love that define
paternal relationships.
In Fatherhood (2021), Kevin
Hart portrays a widowed father
determined to raise his
daughter alone, defying so-
cietal expectations. The
film celebrates the
challenges and tri-
umphs of single par-
enthood, highlight-
ing the universal
themes of sacri-
fice and devo-
tion.

lationships
with his daugh-
ter’s curiosity,
weaving a heartfelt narra-
tive that under-
scores the com-
plexities of father-
daughter dynamics
and the impact of parental deci-
sions on family unity.
Piku explores a quirky yet
endearing relationship between a
father (played byAmitabh Bach-
chan) and his independent
daughter (Deepika Padukone).
Their humorous exchanges
and unconditional love re-
flect the evolving dynamics
of modern Indian families.
Drishyam and Dan-
gal delve into fathers
(played by Ajay Devgn and
Aamir Khan respectively) who
go to extraordinary lengths to
protect and empower their
daughters, challenging soci-
etal norms and stereotypes.
Angrezi Medium portrays a
father (Irrfan Khan) willing to
cross borders to fulfill his daugh-
ter’s educational dreams, em-
phasizing the lengths a parent
will go to support their child’s
aspirations.
Chhichhore celebrates
the bond between a father
(Sushant Singh Rajput) and
son, exploring themes of re-
silience, friendship and the
importance of embracing
life’s challenges together.
These films not only enter-
tain but also inspire, offering
diverse perspectives on father-
hood that resonate with single
parents, mothers, and fathers
alike. They depict fathers not
merely as authority figures but as
mentors, confidants, and pillars
of strength who shape their chil-
dren’s lives profoundly. Through
their narratives, audiences gain
insights into navigating parent-
hood with grace and determina-
tion, celebrating the universal
values of love, sacrifice, and un-
wavering support that define the
essence of fatherhood on this
special day and every day.
As we celebrate Father's Day,
these films remind us that father-
hood is not just about responsi-
bility but also about forging deep
connections and guiding with
love. They highlight the diverse
challenges fathers face, from sin-
gle parenthood to cultural expec-
tations, yet emphasize the univer-
sal values of sacrifice and unwa-
vering support. Whether you're a
single parent, a mother, or a fa-

reflections on navigating parent-
hood with grace and determina-

the bonds we share and honour

This Father’s Day, immerse yourself in a
celebration of fatherhood like never before.
City First proudly presents a captivating
anthology of poems by acclaimed authors,
each piece a heartfelt tribute to the unsung
heroes in our lives. These evocative verses
will touch your soul and elevate your
appreciation for the guiding hands,
steadfast hearts, and unwavering love that
fathers provide.
To Her Father with Some Verses
Most truly honoured and as truly dear,
If worth in me or ought I do appear,
Who can of right better demand the
same
Then may your worthy self from whom
it came?
The principal might yield a greater sum,
Yet handled ill, amounts but to this
crumb;
My stock's so small I do know not how
to pay,
My bond remains in force unto this day;
Yet for part payment take this simple
mite,
Where nothing's to be had, kings lose
their rights.
Such is my debt I may not say forgive,
But as I can, I'll pay it while I live;
Such is my bond, none can discharge
but I,
Yet paying is not paid until I die.
—BY ANNE BRADSTREET
My Papa’s Waltz
The whiskey on your breath
Could make a small boy
dizzy;
But I hung on like death:
Such waltzing was not easy.
We romped until the pans
Slid from the kitchen shelf;
My mother’s countenance
Could not unfrown itself.
The hand that held my wrist
Was battered on one
knuckle;
At every step you missed
My right ear scraped a
buckle.
You beat time on my head
With a palm caked hard by
dirt,
Then waltzed me off to bed
Still clinging to your shirt.
—BY THEODORE ROETHKE
The Gift
To pull the metal splinter from my
palm
my father recited a story in a low
voice.
I watched his lovely face and not
the blade.
Before the story ended, he’d
removed
the iron sliver I thought I’d die from.
I can’t remember the tale,
but hear his voice still, a well
of dark water, a prayer.
And I recall his hands,
two measures of tenderness
he laid against my face,
the flames of discipline
he raised above my head.
Had you entered that afternoon
you would have thought you saw
a man
planting something in a boy’s palm,
a silver tear, a tiny flame.
Had you followed that boy
you would have arrived here,
where I bend over my wife’s right
hand.
Look how I shave her thumbnail
down
so carefully she feels no pain.
Watch as I lift the splinter out.
I was seven when my father
took my hand like this,
and I did not hold that shard
between my fingers and think,
Metal that will bury me,
Christen it Little Assassin,
Ore Going Deep for My Heart.
And I did not lift up my wound and
cry,
Death visited here!
I did what a child does
when he’s given something to
keep.
I kissed my father.
BY LI-YOUNG LEE
Father
My father knows the proper way
The nation should be run;
He tells us children every day
Just what should now be done.
He knows the way to fix the trusts,
He has a simple plan;
But if the furnace needs repairs,
We have to hire a man.
My father, in a day or two
Could land big thieves in jail;
There’s nothing that he cannot do,
He knows no word like “fail.”
“Our confidence” he would restore,
Of that there is no doubt;
But if there is a chair to mend,
We have to send it out.
All public questions that arise,
He settles on the spot;
He waits not till the tumult dies,
But grabs it while it’s hot.
In matters of finance, he can
Tell Congress what to do;
But, O, he finds it hard to meet
His bills as they fall due.
It almost makes him sick to read
The things law-makers say;
Why, father’s just the man they need,
He never goes astray.
All wars he’d very quickly end,
As fast as I can write it;
But when a neighbour starts a fuss,
’Tis mother has to fight it.
In conversation, father can
Do many wondrous things;
He’s built upon a wiser plan
Than presidents or kings.
He knows the ins and outs of each
And every deep transaction;
We look to him for theories,
But look to ma for action.
—BY EDGAR ALBERT GUEST
Father’s Day is
celebrated on the third
Sunday of June every year, which is
considered an annual holiday to
celebrate fatherhood, paternal love, and the
influence that fathers have over their kids to
make a good society. Father’s Day was first started
by Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, in
1909. Father’s Day is the perfect time to honour the
efforts of all the fathers out there who work hard for
their family’s welfare. But, usually, the efforts of
the father go unnoticed, as many tend to
appreciate the love and care of the
mother and forget the efforts
and inputs of the father to
maintain the family as
one.
Playing Dead
Our father liked to play a game.
He played that he was dead.
He took his thick black glasses off
and stretched out on the bed.
He wouldn’t twitch and didn’t snore
or move in any way.
He didn’t even seem to breathe!
We asked, Are you okay?
We tickled fingers up and down
his huge, pink, stinky feet—
He didn’t move; he lay as still
as last year’s parakeet.
We pushed our fingers up his nose,
and wiggled them inside—
Next, we peeled his eyelids back.
Are you okay? we cried.
I really thought he might be dead
and not just playing possum,
because his eyeballs didn’t twitch
when I slid my tongue across ’em.
He’s dead, we sobbed—but to be sure,
I jabbed him in the jewels.
He rose, like Jesus, from the dead,
though I don’t think Jesus drools.
His right hand lashed both right and left.
His left hand clutched his scrotum.
And the words he yelled—I know damn
well
I’m way too young to quote ’em.

हाथ हजारोंहैं िसर पर,
पर िपता के जैसा हाथ नहीं,
साथ हजारोंहै अब भी पर,
िपता के जैसा साथ नहीं।
िबना कहे ही सब कुछ सुनना,
अच्छे से अच्छा ही चुनना,
चला गया सब साथ ही उनके ,
मुिश्कल है अब सपने बुनना।
बुने हुये उनके सपनोंसे,
जीवन िकतना सुन्दर लगता है,
पागल मन को कै से समझाऊ,
जो उनके पीछे भगता है।
दम उनके दम पर ही था,
अब तो डम-डम सा बजता हूं,
दौड़-दौड़ कर चलता था तब,
अब बस कदम-कदम चलता हूॅं।
अपने दम पर इतराते थे,
कहां िकसी से घबराते थे,
अब जाकर ये समझ है आया,
ये सब तो थी उनकी माया।
िचरिनद्रा में सो जाने पर,
उनके अदृश्य लोक जाने पर,
िकतनी भी कोिशश कर लो पर,
पुनर्िमलन िफर कब होता है।
ये ईश्वर की है अद्भुत माया,
िपता में अपना रूप बनाया,
लेिकन इस िनष्ठुर दुिनयां को,
‘आलोक’’ समझ ये नहींहै
आया ।
संस्कार अब िमट से गये हैं,
कलयुग में ये िछप से गये हैं,
िपता-पुत्र को बोझ से लगते,
तो िफर िकस काम की है ये
काया।
काया को कं चन कर लो तुम,
पुण्योंको संिचत कर लो तुम,
माता-िपता तो स्वयं ईश्वर है,
जीते जी स्वगर् चुन लो तुम।

First India Bureau Jaipur Women expressed their anger over the ongoing water scarcity by staging a protest in Booj village of Jamwaramgarh in Jaipur ditrict. They blocked the Booj bus stand Nakchighati-Naila road. They demanded regular water supply and blocked the road for four hours during their sit-in demonstration. Assit Engineer Ramo- tar Meena and Jamwara- mgarhTehsildar Ramesh Chandra Meena reached the spot to calm the women, promising to ar- range water supply through tankers. How- ever, the situation in Booj deteriorated as lo- cal political tensions es- calated amidst the pro- test. The village resi- dents were divided into two factions: one sup- porting the protesting women and the other opposing the protest. This division led to verbal altercations and even scuffles between the two groups. Eventu- ally, some people inter- vened to mediate and resolve the issue. First India Bureau Jaipur The JDA is set to launch a major campaign to widen several key roads in the city from June 18 to June 21.

First India Bureau Jaisalmer Jaisalmer is witnessing a resurgence of malaria cases, with a significant increase in patients both in the city and surround- ing villages. As the mon- soon season approaches, the number of malaria patients has surged, rais- ing alarm among health officials and residents. Jaisalmer has reported the highest number of ma- laria cases in the state, with 53 patients identified so far. In May alone, 24 positive cases were con- firmed. Although govt data indicates no new cas- es in June, pvt hosps are diagnosing about 10 out of every 100 patients with malaria daily. The rise in malaria cases is being at- tributed to the negligence of two key departments: the Medical Department and the Municipal Coun- cil. Both have been criti- cized for their lack of pre- ventive measures and re- sponse to the outbreak. The need for preventive measures and increased vigilance is emphasized to avert a larger health crisis during the rainy season.

  • 4. ho has not seen a po- l i c e m a n write out a ‘fineamount’ foracardriverwhohasvio- lated some traffic regula- tion, such as exceeding the speedlimitorcrossingared light? That must be an in- stance of a driver’s failing to discipline himself. He may have yielded to the temptationortheimpulseto ignore traffic rules, and so had to be disciplined. The very laws of cause and effect within our bod- ies discipline us, if we do not discipline ourselves. What is true of individuals can be applied to a large team in an organisation. The less one disciplines oneself, the more such ones need to be disciplined by their seniors in the in- terest of peace and unity. Discipline is training, especially of the mind or character. Discipline comes from many sources, because of one’s lack of knowledge and experi- ence. One who disciplines oneself by being conscien- tious and thorough in work habits, whether someone is observing or not, will have an inner satisfaction and good reputation. Sometimes, others may not appreciate our firm- ness in a certain matter, but we personally know where we must exercise self-dis- cipline in different aspects of our life. Our natural in- clination often is to follow the course of least resist- ance. It takes self-control to be self-disciplined. So, we need help to do the things that may be difficult to do on our own. Discipline is also seen as training or experience that corrects, strengthens or perfects the mental facul- ties. One may feel the need to discipline oneself to wake up early, or one may need it to acquire knowl- edge or skill. If one disciplines one- self in little things, it will be easy to do so in big things. There is a sense of achievement in the realiza- tion that we did something on time instead of putting it off. Even a small thing such as getting up when the alarm clock rings rath- er than lazily lying in bed, shows discipline. There is a sense of well-being or strength that comes with each act of self-discipline rather than yielding to one’s inclinations and in- dulging oneself. Self-discipline also helps in building good re- lations with others. For example, speaking either too loudly or too softly, can create a poor impres- sion on others. One can even offend others by the way one listens, or fails to listen when others speak. The same can be said about disciplining oneself at the table, not taking too much food at one go, not eating too rapidly or too noisily, all require self-discipline. Good health demands self-discipline, to be con- sistent with one’s exercise routine. What about pos- ture? Good posture cer- tainly pays off in improved health, along with progres- sively improving confi- dence and poise. Not to be overlooked is the value of self-discipline in the matter of recreation. Pursuing them in moderation saves a lot of time and energy. Likewise, leaving a social gathering at a reasonable hour to get a good night’s sleep is necessary to do jus- tice to the next day’s duties. Doing what is right is not simply doing, ‘what comes naturally.’ It re- quires conscious effort, alertness, determination or firmness of purpose and persistence. It means showing will power and restraint. Discipline can also come from others in the form of correction. For it to be effective, it can be given gently and not in a burst of anger. In most cases, merely a few words are sufficient. Discipline is not liked by many. Often, one fails to appreciate its necessity and benefits. At times, one can go to extremes, either becoming obsessive or becoming slack.Atree that is allowed to get out of hand and not trimmed, fails to bear fruit or flourish. Rather, it de- generates or gets diseased. Therefore, one needs to be alert at all times, not only to the position and authority one has, but also to the dan- gers both from within and from those around us. Plan- ning a routine, creating a schedule and then sticking to it, helps. Tackling the work on hand, even when one doesn’t feel motivated to do it, requires self-disci- pline. Taking breaks and doing some physical activ- ity refreshes one to concen- trate and focus on the task. Any helpful advice that moulds our thinking, im- proves our understanding and motivates us to correct our ways is a kind of disci- pline. Responsiveness to what we learn through writ- ten or spoken words is a splendid form of self-disci- pline. Being contrary to self-indulgence, it inspires one to pursue one’s goals and move towards maturity for higher achievements. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL TOP TWEETS SPIRITUAL SPEAK We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. BIBLE SCHEDULE YOUR SUCCESS At times, one can go to extremes, either becom- ing obsessive or becom- ing slack.

A report has now surfaced claiming that the agreement being referred to in me- dia and on social media, in fact, never existed. The story has been dismissed as fake. But it has ignited hope for the internationalization of the Indian rupee. Acceptance of rupee payment by trading part- ners, as was done by Russia for its oil supplies to India, reduces the outgo of valuable foreign currency. India has negotiated a Russia-like deal with the UAE and Singapore for trade in respective national currencies. Despite the Indian economy making strides, for the rupee to be globally acceptable is not going to be easy. Dollar continues to be strong and stable, though China and South Africa, both members of BRICS, are trying to curtail dependence on dollars. China, especially, wants to see an end to America’s global economic dominance. S n the contemporary global scenario, technol- ogy’s transformative power is undeniable. Yet, its benefits are often monopolized by a few countries, exacerbating social inequalities.To fos- ter a more equitable world, technology must be uni- versally accessible.This approach not only bridges the digital divide but also uplifts marginalized communi- ties, fostering social inclusion and economic growth. A human-centric approach towards technology, as advocated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the G7 meet, ensures that advancements serve the broad- er population, not just the elite. By prioritizing acces- sibility, nations can address fundamental societal is- sues such as education, healthcare, and economic disparity. For instance, digital platforms can revolu- tionize education by providing quality learning resources to remote and under- served areas. Simi- larly, telemedicine can bring healthcare services to the door- steps of those living in rural regions, miti- gating geographical barriers. India’s success in leveraging digital technology for public service delivery serves as a beacon of this inclusive ap- proach. The Aadhaar system, a biometric identification program, has facilitated direct benefit transfers to millions, reducing corruption and ensur- ing that subsidies and welfare benefits reach the in- tended recipients. The Unified Payments Interface (UPI) has democratized financial services, enabling seamless digital transactions across the socioeco- nomic spectrum. By promoting the global dissemina- tion of technology, countries can share innovations and best practices, fostering a collaborative effort to tackle global challenges. Technology should not be a privilege of the few but a fundamental right for all. A concerted effort to democratize technology can pave the way for a more just and prosperous world, where social inequalities are mitigated through shared progress and human-centric development. I A human-centric approach towards technology, as advocated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the G7 meet, ensures that advancements serve the broader population, not just the elite W Warm birthday wishes to my cabinet colleague, Shri @kishanreddybjp.

DU supremo Nitish Kumar has been among the master players of political checkmate. Recently, when he was coming from Patna to Delhi to attend the NDA meeting, he was seen chatting with RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav in same flight. It is said that this video was leaked on social media courtesy of Nit- ish himself so that pressure could be maintained on the BJP. As for JDU getting a weak ministry like ‘fisheries’, all this happened with the consent of Nitish. He did not want to create another RCP Singh for himself by giving any heavy ministry to Lallan Singh. It is said that after coming to Delhi, Nitish also reminded BJP top leader- ship that he was promised that Bihar assembly polls would also be held along with the Maharashtra assembly elections. But the way Election Commission has hastily announced by- polls, at least it does not seem so. It seems that Bihar assembly elections will be held on the scheduled time i.e. in 2025. When Nitish Kumar was being shown as a ‘kingmaker’ in entire media, a statement of Bihar’s Dy CM Vijay Sinha comes to fore in which he is seen saying frankly that ‘there is no ‘kingmaker’ in the country’, that is, in a way, this hint was given to Nitish. Is it a coincidence that soon after this, on Thursday morning, Tejashwi Yadav, while ‘jogging’ in half pants, reaches his uncle Nitish’s house. J hen Devendra Fadnavis hurriedly submit- ted his resignation from the post of Deputy CM to the central leadership over the poor performance of BJP in Maharashtra, for the time being, his resignation was not accepted and he was asked to continue in his post. Soon after this, a mountain of troubles fell on Fadnavis, when one of his best friends and Mumbai Cricket Association President 47-year-old Amol Kale suddenly passed away. After watching the India-Pakistan match in the T20 World Cup, Kale was staying in a hotel in New York where he suffered a heart attack and the doctors could not save him. Amol Kale, a resident of Nagpur, was counted among the big business- men. He was very close to Devendra Fadnavis. Kale’s sudden demise is being considered a per- sonal loss for Fadnavis. SP leader Mayawati’s politics is now on the decline. In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the vote of her party BSP in UP has come down to just 9.39 percent. In the last 10 years, the vote of BSP has fallen by more than 10 percent. Now Mayawati’s own leaders have started threatening Mayawati. Mayawati had fielded an old leader of the state BSP from a Dalit dominated seat in UP. When Mayawati’s nephew Akash Anand reached there to campaign for her, he spewed a lot of fire against the BJP, which angered Mayawati and she removed her nephew from the post of ‘National Coordinator’ of party overnight. When the election results came, this leader’s deposit was forfeited. ‘Behen ji’ was very angry with this and after this, this leader got a call from the Lucknow coordinator of BSP that the money given to him by the party for his election should be returned immediately. This leader asked coordinator to let him talk to Behen ji as he is ready to return the money. After this, Behen ji called this leader and she scolded him a lot. Infuriated with anger, Behen ji said something to that leader which she should not have said. Netaji was no less and he also scolded Behan ji and said, ‘It is because of her greed for money that the party has reached this low today.’ It is said that Netaji recorded the entire conversation with Behan ji on his phone and threatened to leak it on social media. This threat had an immediate effect and the Lucknow coordinator immediately approached the leader and he was offered compensation and the entire conversation was deleted from his phone. ormer Tamil Nadu IAS officer VK Pandian, who was once Naveen Patnaik’s ‘blue-eyed boy’, has said goodbye to active politics after BJD’s crushing defeat in the elections. If sources are to be believed, as soon as the election re- sults of Odisha Assembly and Lok Sabha started coming, a large crowd of BJD workers and leaders surrounded Pandian’s house from all sides and started pelting stones at his house. Pandian was already apprehensive about this, so as a pre- caution, he had already sent his wife and children to Dubai. Sources say that after this Pan- dian also secretly left for Dubai. After reaching Dubai, he kept his phone off for 4 days. On the fifth day, as soon as he turned on his phone, a shocked Naveen Patnaik called him. It is said that Naveen only told him that ‘You ran away to Dubai with all the party’s money.’ Pandian then wanted to explain. He also returned from Dubai but landed in Chennai instead of Bhubane- swar. Sources say that Pandian has bought a luxurious bungalow for himself in Chennai. This is the same bungalow on which CM Stalin also had his eyes, but Pandian bought it by paying a higher price. WHAT SHOULD FADNAVIS DO? MAYAWATI ENTANGLED IN MAYA’S LOVE WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO PANDIAN?

As a gesture of apprecia- tion, First India News pledged to donate wall clocks to all police sta- tions and offices across Rajasthan, beginning with the inaugural phase of distribution to the po- lice stations in Jaipur. The symbolic presenta- tion took place with First India News CEO and Managing Editor, Pawan Arora, personally hand- ing over 101 wall clocks to Jaipur Police Com- missioner Biju George Joseph. During the ceremony, Pawan Arora commend- ed the proactive efforts of the Jaipur Police un- der the leadership of Commissioner Biju George Joseph in swiftly addressing criminal ac- tivities. In response, Commissioner Biju George Joseph warmly welcomed Pawan Arora to the Commissionerate and expressed gratitude to First India News for their community-mind- ed initiative. He lauded the channel not only for its prominence in the realm of news but also for its commitment to social causes. The event was marked by discussions on vari- ous pertinent issues be- tween Commissioner Biju George Joseph and Pawan Arora, including the operational hours of clubs, pubs, and bars. Commissioner Biju George Joseph outlined the regulatory measures adopted by the Jaipur Police, stipulating that clubs and pubs must close by midnight, whereas restaurants not serving alcohol are per- mitted to operate until 1 am. This measure aims to safeguard the youth from distractions like drugs, ensuring their fo- cus remains on educa- tion rather than nightlife. Addressing concerns from residents about noise pollution caused by clubs in residential areas, Commissioner Biju George Joseph clar- ified that there is no blanket ban on bars, pubs, and clubs operat- ing within hotels or des- ignated areas. Pawan Arora, in turn, suggested broader municipal and city planning actions to regulate clubs operating in residential areas which is a nuisance to the local residents , proposing col- laboration with the JDA and JMC for enhanced enforcement. Meanwhile, Biju also briefed Arora on recent launch of the NazarApp, aimed at enhancing pub- lic safety by providing real-time information on crime prevention, law enforcement updates, and road accident pre- vention within the city.

Many leaders clearly said that in these elec- tions, the party’s core voter also seemed to be away from the BJP. During the review meeting, the impact of the farmers’ movement in Sikar was also cited as one of the major reasons for the election defeat. At the same time, the distance of BJP’s core voter on Jhunjhunu seat and the selection of candidate in Churu were counted among the reasons for the defeat. The reason for the defeat was said to be the loss to the party due to the worsening of caste equations in Barmer and Dausa. During the review discussion, the distance of Gurjar and Meena voters from BJP in Dausa and Tonk-Sawai Madhopur seats was also counted as a major reason for the defeat.

City First proudly presents a captivating anthology of poems by acclaimed authors, each piece a heartfelt tribute to the unsung heroes in our lives. These evocative verses will touch your soul and elevate your appreciation for the guiding hands, steadfast hearts, and unwavering love that fathers provide. To Her Father with Some Verses Most truly honoured and as truly dear, If worth in me or ought I do appear, Who can of right better demand the same Then may your worthy self from whom it came? The principal might yield a greater sum, Yet handled ill, amounts but to this crumb; My stock's so small I do know not how to pay, My bond remains in force unto this day; Yet for part payment take this simple mite, Where nothing's to be had, kings lose their rights. Such is my debt I may not say forgive, But as I can, I'll pay it while I live; Such is my bond, none can discharge but I, Yet paying is not paid until I die. —BY ANNE BRADSTREET My Papa’s Waltz The whiskey on your breath Could make a small boy dizzy; But I hung on like death: Such waltzing was not easy. We romped until the pans Slid from the kitchen shelf; My mother’s countenance Could not unfrown itself. The hand that held my wrist Was battered on one knuckle; At every step you missed My right ear scraped a buckle. You beat time on my head With a palm caked hard by dirt, Then waltzed me off to bed Still clinging to your shirt. —BY THEODORE ROETHKE The Gift To pull the metal splinter from my palm my father recited a story in a low voice. I watched his lovely face and not the blade. Before the story ended, he’d removed the iron sliver I thought I’d die from. I can’t remember the tale, but hear his voice still, a well of dark water, a prayer. And I recall his hands, two measures of tenderness he laid against my face, the flames of discipline he raised above my head. Had you entered that afternoon you would have thought you saw a man planting something in a boy’s palm, a silver tear, a tiny flame. Had you followed that boy you would have arrived here, where I bend over my wife’s right hand. Look how I shave her thumbnail down so carefully she feels no pain. Watch as I lift the splinter out. I was seven when my father took my hand like this, and I did not hold that shard between my fingers and think, Metal that will bury me, Christen it Little Assassin, Ore Going Deep for My Heart. And I did not lift up my wound and cry, Death visited here! I did what a child does when he’s given something to keep. I kissed my father. BY LI-YOUNG LEE Father My father knows the proper way The nation should be run; He tells us children every day Just what should now be done. He knows the way to fix the trusts, He has a simple plan; But if the furnace needs repairs, We have to hire a man. My father, in a day or two Could land big thieves in jail; There’s nothing that he cannot do, He knows no word like “fail.” “Our confidence” he would restore, Of that there is no doubt; But if there is a chair to mend, We have to send it out. All public questions that arise, He settles on the spot; He waits not till the tumult dies, But grabs it while it’s hot. In matters of finance, he can Tell Congress what to do; But, O, he finds it hard to meet His bills as they fall due. It almost makes him sick to read The things law-makers say; Why, father’s just the man they need, He never goes astray. All wars he’d very quickly end, As fast as I can write it; But when a neighbour starts a fuss, ’Tis mother has to fight it. In conversation, father can Do many wondrous things; He’s built upon a wiser plan Than presidents or kings. He knows the ins and outs of each And every deep transaction; We look to him for theories, But look to ma for action. —BY EDGAR ALBERT GUEST Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June every year, which is considered an annual holiday to celebrate fatherhood, paternal love, and the influence that fathers have over their kids to make a good society. Father’s Day was first started by Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, in 1909. Father’s Day is the perfect time to honour the efforts of all the fathers out there who work hard for their family’s welfare. But, usually, the efforts of the father go unnoticed, as many tend to appreciate the love and care of the mother and forget the efforts and inputs of the father to maintain the family as one. Playing Dead Our father liked to play a game. He played that he was dead. He took his thick black glasses off and stretched out on the bed. He wouldn’t twitch and didn’t snore or move in any way. He didn’t even seem to breathe! We asked, Are you okay? We tickled fingers up and down his huge, pink, stinky feet— He didn’t move; he lay as still as last year’s parakeet. We pushed our fingers up his nose, and wiggled them inside— Next, we peeled his eyelids back. Are you okay? we cried. I really thought he might be dead and not just playing possum, because his eyeballs didn’t twitch when I slid my tongue across ’em. He’s dead, we sobbed—but to be sure, I jabbed him in the jewels. He rose, like Jesus, from the dead, though I don’t think Jesus drools. His right hand lashed both right and left. His left hand clutched his scrotum. And the words he yelled—I know damn well I’m way too young to quote ’em. — BY ANDREW HUDGINS Tripti Mahawar cityfirst@firstindia.co.in हाथ हजारोंहैं िसर पर, पर िपता के जैसा हाथ नहीं, साथ हजारोंहै अब भी पर, िपता के जैसा साथ नहीं। िबना कहे ही सब कुछ सुनना, अच्छे से अच्छा ही चुनना, चला गया सब साथ ही उनके , मुिश्कल है अब सपने बुनना। बुने हुये उनके सपनोंसे, जीवन िकतना सुन्दर लगता है, पागल मन को कै से समझाऊ, जो उनके पीछे भगता है। दम उनके दम पर ही था, अब तो डम-डम सा बजता हूं, दौड़-दौड़ कर चलता था तब, अब बस कदम-कदम चलता हूॅं। अपने दम पर इतराते थे, कहां िकसी से घबराते थे, अब जाकर ये समझ है आया, ये सब तो थी उनकी माया। िचरिनद्रा में सो जाने पर, उनके अदृश्य लोक जाने पर, िकतनी भी कोिशश कर लो पर, पुनर्िमलन िफर कब होता है। ये ईश्वर की है अद्भुत माया, िपता में अपना रूप बनाया, लेिकन इस िनष्ठुर दुिनयां को, ‘आलोक’’ समझ ये नहींहै आया । संस्कार अब िमट से गये हैं, कलयुग में ये िछप से गये हैं, िपता-पुत्र को बोझ से लगते, तो िफर िकस काम की है ये काया। काया को कं चन कर लो तुम, पुण्योंको संिचत कर लो तुम, माता-िपता तो स्वयं ईश्वर है, जीते जी स्वगर् चुन लो तुम। —BY ALOK GAUTAM ASST.
